    Go for oysters and English staples, all of which will make you question British grub's bad rap. Read more

    Of all the British pubs in this city full of British pubs, the Dandelion is the one that hits closest to home for expat royalists and those who love them.

    Philadelphia Magazine · January 3, 2012

    Keep calm and carry on at this kitsch-filled English pub near Rittenhouse Square. Head upstairs and check out the "dog room." Read more · October 10, 2013

    Stephen Starr's most exciting restaurant. From cured salmon to the best duck liver mousse in town... You cask beer drinkers will be very happy with the drink selection, too. [Eater 38 Member]

    Comfy leather chairs face the upstairs fireplace. Or linger over an Imperial pint by the downstairs fire.

    Stephen Starr does it again, and this time with a British inspired pub. This gastropub knows makes delicious Cumberland Sausages with Mashed Potato and Onion Gravy and Beer-battered Fish and Chips.

    Order the A-list fish and chips dish which starred on The Best Thing I Ever Ate TV show.

    Proof that pub fare is more than a fad here: the fish-and-chips, which achieves the pinnacle of moistness and flavor when its crust puffs up to encase the cod, letting the steam work its magic.

    Pick the Scotch Honeysuckle. Dewar's scotch, dry vermouth, honey, lemon and rosewater. Read more

    Enjoy The Dandelion's UK inspired gastropub fare with their food-friendly beer list featuring U.K. drafts and bottles that are rare stateside, along with three, constantly-rotating cask ales.

    Try the Pimm's Cup

    This multi-floored British pub is a high end version of what you'd find downtown at The Dark Horse. Go for the food in particular, our recommendation being their triple-fried chips.

    Weinhenstephaner Heiffeweissen from the oldest brewery (founded circa 1040) plus $4 deviled eggs wrap up a night oh so well.

    Chocolate pudding is a must for dessert. Unexpectedly different.

    Best meal in Philly! Fancy pub fare in a lovely atmosphere (it used to be two residences) on multiple levels--literally!

    Angelica Dongallo · October 31, 2014
  • Tammy G.

    For brunch, order the beet cured salmon (trust me) and the poached egg with bubble & squeak. If there's a wait, head to the top floor bar and scope a seat instead.

    The burger is excellent

    This is a wonderful place for drinks and dinner. I would highly recommend the duck and chicken liver parfait - amazing. The atmosphere and decor are great as well. This place is a keeper.

    The chicken-duck liver parfait is their signature dish. It's the perfect balance of sophistication, interest, and comfort. If you're not eating it, you're doing something wrong.

    The Eggs Benedict is to die for!

    The London Underground is a new dessert you can't miss - it's like a gourmet candy bar. And if you are lucky enough to have Cameron as your server, be sure to follow his suggestions-I never regret it!

    Eileen Norton · September 29, 2014
  • Cate B.

    Fancy cocktails in pitchers, and crowd pleasers ranging from fish and chips to Shepards pie to crab risotto make this place a must - experience

  • Elyse E.

    If you're not into the English fare, come for a fireside hot toddy (not on the menu) and the rosemary roasted bar nuts. They're incredible.

    Elyse Estrada · March 23, 2014
  • Dominika F.

    Go for the chicken and duck liver parfait and the crispy pork belly! Amazing!

    Turkey club - do it - you won't be disappointed.

    The Epcot of British pub culture. Come to admire the decor, they did a great job with it. Don't come expecting gastro-divinity. Because the food is mediocre. And not in the British way.

    annie heckenberger · March 2, 2013
  • Raven D.

    Beet marinated salmon, rabbit pie, pork belly, toffee pudding, chocolate pot, shoot yourself. It won't get any better.
